Monday | Slow Motion Summer Days

With our air conditioning restored to maximum performance, Barq's Root Beer in the fridge and my curtains finally hung in my window, today pretty much feels like a perfect day. There's nothing to brag about or shout from the rooftops, but there's plenty to soak up and enjoy.

  1. What a wonderful post! I love your line, "There's nothing to brag about or shout from the rooftops, but there's plenty to soak up and enjoy." How much of our life is just that?
    Great photos too. The head phones and family snapshot and one of you guys in the pool are my favorites ;)

    1. Isn't it an amazing pool? It's the one at my grandpa's old two-story country house where I spent a LOT of mf growing up years. I know that pool inside and out! Due to his declining condition, it looks like the house will be selling before too long and it's SOOO sad!!
